The SOFHT Awards recognises and celebrates excellence within the food industry and its associated industries and PestWest are incredibly honoured to have won an award in the Best New Product category.

This broad category covers any aspect of food, service or equipment, and flyDetect® was up against some stiff competition! The Awards were judged by a panel of experienced food industry professionals from the Society’s membership. 

Fred Hurstel, PestWest Business Director, commented: “We are so pleased that flyDetect® has been recognised as a Best New Product by food industry experts. It has been years in the making and is the first of its kind in the pest control industry.

"Flying insects contaminating products remains a significant issue for many food companies and early identification of potential flying insect problems is a huge benefit in areas such as food production, where zero tolerance of insects is required.”

He continued, "During the current pandemic, it is especially important that food manufacturers have the peace of mind that insect detection is being taken care of whilst keeping their staff safe, and flyDetect® allows them to do this via remote monitoring.”

flyDetect® is a 24/7 remote monitoring system, which has a built-in high-resolution camera which captures the entire sticky board.

flyDetect® is designed to send immediate notifications of emerging infestations. The capture thresholds can be tailored to the sensitivity of the situation in which flyDetect® is being used.
